Former New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung is facing some serious legal trouble.

Chung was arrested Monday in Milton, Mass., and charged with one count of assault and battery on a family/household member and one count of vandalizing property, per a criminal complaint filed Tuesday.

Chung is scheduled for an arraignment Tuesday in Quincy, Mass.

The 34-year-old announced his NFL retirement in March after a 12-year career, 11 of which were spent in New England. Chung, who opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, won three Super Bowls with the Patriots after the team drafted him in 2009.

UPDATE (1:30 p.m. ET): Chung pleaded not guilty to his two charges of assault and batter on a family/household member and vandalism Tuesday at his arraignment.

He was released on $10,000 cash bail with conditions to have no contact with the victim and has another court date set for Jan. 7, 2022, per the Norfolk County District Attorney's office.
